❤️ I used this in one of my Zoom lessons during the closure. I numbered the cards and had the kids randomly give me a number for each category: characters, setting, and problem. Then, in breakout rooms, the kids had to use their selections to create a group story! The stories were awesome. It really helped the kids see the importance of each part of a story.
❤️ I can't love this enough. My kids had a blast creating the stories from the different cards they picked and they ended up being some of the most creative pieces they have written.
❤️ My students always struggle with writing. They lack ideas and need a lot of scaffolding. Having this colourful, creative and practical resource allows me to engage my students and inject fun in the teaching of writing. I am so glad I found such a wonderful ready-made resource. Awesome. Thank you.
❤️ "This product is awesome!! I am an ESL teacher, and a lot of my students get discouraged while writing because of the difficulty due to the level of their language proficiency. I used these a couple of times already this week with my students (newcomers included, but I modified their writing for them) and they loved it! They enjoyed that they just got to have fun and be creative with their writing! Thank you!"
❤️ My kindergarten kids LOVED these during journal time! They allowed them to be so creative. Thank you!

How I Use These Decks of Cards
• Students have fun weaving the three prompts together in their stories. The variety is endless!
• I keep the sets of cards in separate matching plastic baskets. That way, students know where the cards go after they’ve copied the character, setting, and problem onto a writing sheet (provided).
• At times when we need a class prompt for a quick write, I have one student pull a character (or more), one pull a setting, and one pull the problem. After we finish writing (including me), we share our stories. It’s fun to compare our stories!
• Near our writing center, I have a separate creative writing board where students can post their stories by fastening them along a fishing line with a clothespin.
